By the numbers

0: Number of runs the Reds have scored in the first six innings of each of their past 3 games.

1: Reds’ starting pitcher this season whose record is better than .500: Edinson Volquez at 4-2.

2: Number of saves for Francisco Cordero, who is being paid $12 million this season, since he earned his 21st save of the season on July 7 – almost a month ago

3: Number of Reds’ wins since the All-Star break (team’s record is 3-16)

5: Wins by Reds’ starting pitchers since July 1 (Bronson Arroyo has 2 of those)

6: Biggest run total in a game since the All-Star break (they’ve scored six twice, once in a win and once in a loss)

6: Number of Reds’ position players who had at-bats tonight who have batting averages worse than .240 (the number of players with averages better than .240 is four). And our next two bats off the bench would’ve been Janish (.218) and Sutton (.174).

.214: Team batting average over the past 26 games

1998: The last time the Reds had a losing streak of 9 or more (they lost 11 straight from June 14 to June 24)

What I couldn’t find but I’d be curious to find out is when was the last time they lost nine consecutive games at home.
